Degenerate Pax2 and Senseless binding motifs improve detection of low affinity sites required for enhancer specificity

PLoS Genet
PMCID: 5902045
PMID: 29617378
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1007289

[…] ssing read quality with FASTQC [] (–); mapping to the mm10 genome using Bowtie 2 []; and calling and scoring peaks using MACS2 [].PBM data were downloaded from CIS-BP (D. rerio Pax2b, M1499_1.02) and UniPROBE (H. sapiens Gfi1b, UP00592) [, ]. AUROC analysis was done on PBM probes binned by fluorescence (top 0.25%, top 0.5%-0.25%, top 1%-0.5%, top 2.5%-1%, top 5%-1%, top 10%-5%). For each bin, cont […]


A unified approach for quantifying and interpreting DNA shape readout by transcription factors

Mol Syst Biol
PMCID: 5822049
PMID: 29472273
DOI: 10.15252/msb.20177902

[…] maximizing the number of bases matching the top 10mer, then constructed a frequency matrix from these alignments, and, finally, used this frequency matrix to align the retained SELEX probes. For the UniPROBE and CIS‐BP PBM datasets, we selected the 100 probes with the strongest binding signal and aligned these to the curated scoring matrix. We finally used the pentamer tables to compute the mean […]


Identification of Single Nucleotide Non coding Driver Mutations in Cancer

Front Genet
PMCID: 5801294
PMID: 29456552
DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2018.00016

[…] ext generation sequencing (ChIP-seq) (; ; ). Currently, DNA binding specificities have been determined for nearly half of human TFs, which are available in different repositories such CIS-BP, Jaspar, Uniprobe, and Transfac (; ; ; ) (Table ). Differences in TF binding between SNV alleles can be predicted using position weight matrices (PWMs), probabilistic representations of DNA binding specificiti […]


Functional annotation of structural ncRNAs within enhancer RNAs in the human genome: implications for human disease

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5686184
PMID: 29138457
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-15822-7

[…] enhancers.We determined the enrichment of 466 TFs in eRNA regions and weakly-transcribed enhancers using FIMO with the default parameters. The TF motifs were collected from the Transfac, Jaspar, and UniProbe databases. A motif was retained only when it was significantly overrepresented (P ≤ 0.01) compared with the background sets. We used the binomial distribution test to calculate the P-values o […]


Hypomethylated domain enriched DNA motifs prepattern the accessible nucleosome organization in teleosts

PMCID: 5607494
PMID: 28931432
DOI: 10.1186/s13072-017-0152-2

[…] TOMTOM [] was used to search motifs similar to 6-mers. JASPAR Vertebrates and UniPROBE Mouse databases were used as target motifs. […]


Sox5 regulates beta cell phenotype and is reduced in type 2 diabetes

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5467166
PMID: 28585545
DOI: 10.1038/ncomms15652

[…] tif match analysis was performed using the motif matching tool available in Biopython with a false positive rate of 0.0001 in these regions. Motifs were obtained in Jaspar, Transfact (public) and the Uniprobe databases. The same procedure was repeated 100 times on random genomic regions with the same length as the original regions. We employed a one-tailed Fisher's Exact test to measure if the pro […]
